A different take on Israel and Other Important Issues

“Americans have been increasingly socialized to equate inattention, anger, anxiety, and immobilizing despair with a medical condition, and to seek medical treatment rather than political remedies. What better way to maintain the status quo than to view inattention, anger, anxiety, and depression as biochemical problems of those who are mentally ill rather than normal reactions to an increasingly authoritarian society.”
“Why Anti-Authoritarians are Diagnosed as Mentally Ill”

When I lived in the States it was *never* so much as considered that a person presenting symptoms of “mental illness” was, in fact, morally outraged to the point of not being able to stand society being morally outrageous anymore.
It was always presumed that society was the norm and anyone who didn’t fit in was sick.
Often, Parents were blamed for making a child disturbed, when, in fact, the youngster was freaking out from the society he or she was living in.

In fact, there are no mental illnesses. There are only Moral Illnesses. That is true even of personality disorders that have an underlying organic cause.

1) Some people are so deranged morally that they drive other people mad with outrage.
2) Some people are so outraged by the morally outrageous, and perceive themselves as helpless to do anything about it. So, they construct an alternate reality or display bizarre symptoms.
3) Some people are some measure of both 1 and 2

There are no pills, no talk or group therapies, no surgeries that can cure someone of Moral Derangement (Psychopathy) or Moral Outrage.

It is only when we admit that we are living in a morally deranged reality that we realize our desire to create an alternate reality is the most healthy reaction.
However, that reality has to be habitable by other Souls. To create a reality for one is pathological.

We Suffer from Moral Illness, Not Mental Illness

We Suffer from Moral Illness, Not Mental Illness

There is no such thing as “mental health or “mental illness”, there is only Moral Health and Moral Illness. This is true even when there is an underlying organic defect, which is the etiology of the symptoms.

There are three classes of people who suffer from the various symptoms Psychoses, Neuroses and Behavioral Disorders:

1) those whose moral structure is pathological
2) those who have been traumatized by those whose moral structures are pathological to the point where they were forced to create an alternative reality in which to live or were rendered dysfunctional as a result of the trauma
3) those who are both – the vast majority of Humanity today because we allow the morally pathological to not only run amok in society, but even lead our societies.

There is no scientific cure for Moral Illness. No pill, surgery or implant can cure moral illness. Talk therapy is effective only to the extent that it is a morally healthy interchange.

To attempt to cure moral illness with scientific methods is pseudo-science. That approach has been the preferred method of (mal and mis)treatment in Psychiatry and Psychology because those professions tend to attract many Psychopaths who quickly assume a leadership and authoritarian position in the Psych-Social Services community and steer it to their own nefarious purposes.

The first honest and effective step in eradicating the symptoms of Psychoses, Neuroses and Personality Disorders must be an intrepid treatment of Psychopathy, on every societal level.

Psychopathy Confronting Evil at Home and In Society

Psychopathy Confronting Evil at Home and In Society

The first confrontation with Psychopathy, which is the modern term for Evil, is in the home.
We, the Parents of Psychopaths, must overcome our shame, our fear, our doubts and even put our love aside, and confront the issue of having a Psychopathic child intrepidly.

Psychopathic children are first recognized by their behavior, but the presence of the Illness can be empirically verified.

It is our job to lobby Psycho-Social Services to deal with Psychopathy in Children honest, humanely and effectively.

Conservative estimate: ‘One In 100 Children Is A Psychopath’

Psychopath in the Family

One in a hundred children are ‘psychopathic’, warn researchers – and they say there is nothing parents can do to control them

Scientists say affected children lie, cheat, manipulate and commit acts of remorseless cruelty
Traditional punishments have no effect on their behaviour

Genetics and Epigenetics affect Psychopathy

Moral “taint” still seeps along blood lines

A Cat Can Save Your Life – They Can Spot the Toxic People…

Your cat CAN see who is a Psychopath. When my child who is a Psychopath comes into the house my cat runs into another room and stays there, sometimes for days if the person stays over. Normally, my cat approaches even the delivery boy or someone coming to the door to solicit donations in a friendly way.

Psychopathy and Mind Control

Psychopathy and Mind Control

It is when one begins to grapple with Psychopathy that one really begins to understand Mind Control

Pscyhopathy and Mind Control by Doreen_Dotan

This is an interesting article.
I’m not at all sure the findings are exhaustive.
A person in full control of their faculties can oscillate between analysis and empathy in accordance with which quality a given situation requires or choose to turn them both on at once when need be.

Jewish Psychopaths

Jewish Psychopaths

This is the first part of a three-part discussion of Psychopathy, particularly vis-a-vis the Jews.

In this part I discuss Psychopathy in some Jewish families, recognizing the fact that there is a strong genetic component to Psychopathy.

In the second part I discuss the spectrum of Jewish Psychopathy and show where the Jewish scholar, the backbone of our culture fits in on that spectrum.

In the third part, I employ the Hebrew language in order to understand the depths of researchers’ descriptions of the basis of Psychopathy as revealed by recent studies and experiments.

All three parts are now up and running on Vimeo.

Psychopathic Children and their Parents

Psychopathic Children and their Parents

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” — John Lennon

One of the most painful and trying experiences one will ever as a parent is being the parent of a psychopathic child. The struggle never ends – and heightens when the psychopathic child himself or herself becomes a parent.

This phenomenon exists and it is high time we recognized it for what it is.
